Donatella hailed the star 'so mature and thoughtful' and said that he treated his model girlfriend like 'such a gentleman.' 

'They are very nice young people, a lovely couple, in fact. And then he told me how much he loved fashion. It was then I knew he was the right face for what I had in mind. He’s smart to do it with me.'
